Does any one know much about these scopes?

Iv just one off a certain bidding site on impulse for my .17 HMR at a good price.

It's a 6x42, kind of worried it's not going to be good for low light stuff at up to 100 yards only now.

Awesome glass. I've been using them for years and its up there with Zeiss & Swaro. Unfortunately the cost has now caught up with the quality!

I would say however if its specifically for low light, then go for a 56mm. 42mm isn't the best for low light.

It cost me £130 and the quality is unreal. Yet iv not used it for lamping yet.

I'm going to get a .22wmr and bang a second hand 8x56 on it for low light iv decided.

Went out last night with the Docter, for low light it's brilliant. For the range and stuff I'm doing it is brilliant quality.

Really snapped a bargain up here

You've got an absolute steal mate. Prices have recently rocketed on Docter optics.

I sold an 8x42 years ago for £450. & it had marks in the optics!
